The authors attempted to establish the norms of the external nose in Korean by reviewing the naso-frontal angles, the naso-labial angles, the naso-facial angles, and the nasal indices derived from a random group of population. The sample population was composed of 59 male and 51 female patients, without any facial lesion or anomaly, who visited the outpatient section of the department of otolaryngology. All of them were over 20 years of age and their frontal and lateral photographs were taken in black and white for detailed analysis. Fifteen television actors and 17 actresses, over 20 years of age, were randomly chosen for the purpose of comparison and their somatometrics were analyzed as above. The results were as follows : 1) There was no significant difference of the naso-frontal angles between actor group and average group. 2) There was no significant difference of the naso-labial angles between actor and average group in males. However, the naso-labial angles were statistically significantly greater in actress group when compared to female average group. 3) The naso-facial angles were significantly greater in actor/actress group in both sexes. 4) The nasal indices of all groups were of mesorrhine type.
